Gyuto • 210 mm • POM handle • Carbon damascus 1095, 15n20 • double bevel
A unique knife, of which there are only 2 in the Netherlands (and also different from each other). The high blade and short wide handle gives this workhorse a lot of control. The blade is razor-sharp and has a unique damask pattern.
Elwin de Veld about Blenheim knives:
The train to London is easily taken. Boarding in The Hague is practically at my doorstep and you will be in the center of London within half a day. Blenheim Forge is on the outskirts of London in Peckham Grove. Hidden under the pillars of the train arches you enter the workshop through a small door. First there are two large grinding machines (Kaiten toshis) in front of the entrance, where you actually swing in between. The workshop is simple, cold (or warm .. depends on which season you visit) and smells like steel dust. Delicious. The boys from Blenheim, Jo, James & Rich are self-taught. Trial and error, has led to where they are today: perfect craftsmanship, fine tuning the process with an eye for detail and resulting in beautiful knives.
"A good knife will, indeed, transform the way you cook."
